My Review:

On the brink of desolation, Fanny seeks help from her real father, the Earl of Clarion, only to discover he forgot her in his will. Fanny was born on the wrong side of the blanket. She’s always known her birthright as a bastard but didn’t realize her father was an earl until after her mother died. With her unscrupulous stepfather also dead and leaving her destitute and in need of money to feed her younger siblings, she makes the journey to seek out the Earl of Clarion. She meets the earl’s steward, Eli, and he informs her the earl is dead and didn’t leave her anything. In fact, the earl listed all his other bastard children in his will but not her. The only thing in her favor is she has the earl’s hair color and eyes. Eli agrees to help her and accompanies her back home while waiting to hear from the current earl. Eli’s expertise is invaluable, but she can’t deny burgeoning feelings for him. Is he her hero in disguise or a wolf in sheep’s clothing?

The Forgotten Daughter is a riveting historical romance I couldn’t put down. This book has all the elements I enjoy in a historical romance: a feisty yet down on her luck heroine, an unexpected hero, a love worth risking it all for, historical accuracy down to the last detail, and a few unsavory characters to defeat. The plot moves at a great pace with twists I didn’t anticipate. I connected with both Fanny and Eli right away. As a couple, they complement each other. Yes, it took them quite some time to get together but it just made the ending all the sweeter. The historical world-building was exquisite, and I didn’t want The Forgotten Daughter to end. Caroline Warfield is a brilliant historical romance author who takes pride in her research prowess. Her heart and soul are in between the pages of The Forgotten Daughter. If you love historical romance, pick up The Forgotten Daughter. Fans of historically accurate romances will simply adore The Forgotten Daughter. Another gem by Caroline Warfield and one I highly recommend!

Author Biography:

Traveler, poet, librarian, technology manager—award-winning and Amazon best-selling author Caroline Warfield has been many things (even a nun), but above all, she is a romantic. Having retired to the urban wilds of eastern Pennsylvania, she reckons she is on at least her third act, writing family-centered historical romance set mainly in the Regency and Victorian eras.

Caroline believes firmly that love is worth the risk; she sits in an office surrounded by windows and nudges readers to explore the riskiest territory of all, the human heart.

In addition to her weekly blog, But First Coffee, she hosts guests on her Highlighting Historical Romance series, and contributes to the SMPAuthors Blog, and (on a lighter note) The Teatime Tattler, a blog in the shape of a fictional nineteenth-century gossip rag.
